This month, HFS sponsored, volunteered and coordinated a charity fundraiser poker tournament for the Lafayette School Mentoring Project, an Oakland nonprofit that offers tutoring and mentoring to grade school age children in West Oakland schools.
The event was held at the First Unitarian Church downtown and all available poker seats were sold out. The event raised $2,000 for LSMP to help off set operating costs. HFS staff assisted in soliciting poker and raffle prizes, prepared food & drinks, served attendees and hosted the evening.
HFS employees participate in a variety of volunteer activities throughout the course of the year. If you would like to learn more about upcoming volunteer activities, please contact Debora Bertasi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
